I have chickened out of having surgery twice! My doctor is so patient with me. He says he doesn't want me having this L4-5 spinal fusion, with laminectomy without having my head in the right place. My surgery is October 6th, and I am scared. I'm scared because I have those good days that tell me maybe I don't need the surgery, I can walk. I am in pain every day, but not severe pain. I have sciatica, but not severe. Imaging study shows synovial cyst superimposed on L4-5 severe facet arthropathy. I am going to listen to every bit of advice given. It is appreciated so much.Welcome to Spine-Health
